announced she is not going to campaign in 2012 for barack obama. >> host: the role of jesse jackson in president president s early political career. >> guest: that's very up known. i was very fortunate in being able to find about that. jesse jackson is still a highly regarded figure in the african-american community in chicago. and when obama started running for the u.s. senate, he was advised to go to jackson and get some help from jackson regarding foreign policy issues, domestic policy issues, but even more important, his speaking -- his oratory needed some work and they thought jesse could help him. and jackson agreed to do so. and every saturday for a whole year, barack obama was invited to the push rainbow meeting that jackson held, where jackson worked with obama on his oratory and his delivery of speeches, and he improved tremendously. guess what? since he was elected president, president barack obama has not invited jesse jackson to the white house once. he is totally, completely cut himself off from jesse jackson. no one seems to know exactly why, except that it appears th

that. it is andrew jackson. and first of all, how often did you look for the little story at the beginning that -- frankly, a lot of them i never heard. >> if you didn't hear of them i'm very impressed. we did. and i cap say that i was the one personally going through the archives and doing it. it was one of the decisions i made to try to make it as non historical as possible, to make it as journalistic as possible. and it is -- device we use in journalism to find the little nugget, the little anecdote that gives -- reveals something about the guy's character. it is a device you use in journalism, lead little. lead with some little wonderful nugget, anecdote, that gives you an insight ask draws the reader in. and we begin in the case of andrew jackson with a story of him in a duel, dean fending his wife's honor at which he had to do a number of times. before he -- went to the presidency. >> you say -- the fellow's name is charles dickinson who was 27 years old and had already killed 26 people in duels. who is his opponent if >> andrew jackson. >> what was -- what was the r

andrew jackson higgins who produced an incredible number of craft, landing craft but after the war was -- out of business but especially if you look at people like howard hughes. howard hughes was a giant failure during world war ii. he doesn't produce any weapons that were. he produces the wooden recognizance airplane very fast but they aren't really use before the end of the war. sent -- this is the whole point. people like howard hughes were necessary so that we could have people like henry kaiser. it's only because you have the failures that you know what doesn't work. every time something doesn't work you know not to go there and so is because we have this and other countries did not, they insisted you went every time or you'd die, that's going to cause a problem down the line. it's no different in europe. the german miracle of economic production was in fact a faƇade. supported by mass conscription that eliminated unemployment but by 1934 and early 1935, germany's economy was already rolling back to its pre-hitler status. only the imposition of tariffs on eastern europe whic
that happened to discourse and relations but to black people suddenly and -- justice jackson and all sharpener not the sole spokesperson certainly those policies of welfare reform law and order they have been demagogue when nixon says law-and-order we know what he talks about. those were reagan and bush and rudy guiliani bless his soul tens of thousands of black lives were saved when will fare was one of the reform to blacks of lives were saved in a different way law-and-order was so saved and bill clinton took credit for both. [laughter] and we have 12 years of paradise where i describe the many wonderful things that happened. people are not walking on eggshells is a more. people had to be worried you would innocently say a word then you would ruin your career, you'd be hated by all of humankind. that was after over at o.j.. changes are subtle but it was wonderful for race relations in america. and happened along time ago then comes the most liberal candidate as barack obama it is the two for. a liberal president and his critics by:the reese's. and now with the bombing it comes back. we're wa
, but it was a wonderful thing that happened to black people. suddenly sharpson and jackson were not the sole black spokesman. republican policies that have been being pushed by republicans for years, welfare reform, law and order policies, demagogued as racist, racist, racist, and when nixon says "law and order" we know what he's talking about. no law and order policies instituted by reagan and bush judges, rudy guiliani, bless his souls, tens of thousands of black lives were saved. when welfare was reformed, black lives were saved in a different way. welfare and law and order were so successful, bill clinton claimed credit for both. [laughter] we had 12 years of paradise, that's in the chapter, post-oj pair dice describing wonderful things that happened. people are not walking on egg shells anymore with the list of words you just mentioned. people had to be worried back then you would innocently say a word that would be deemed racist. you would ruin your career. you would be -- you would be hated by all of human kind. that was over after oj. a lot of the change after oj was really very subtle, bu
and with his help he ascended the jobs in the yet penetration of andrew jackson. first he helped him become the u.s. attorney general, then the secretary of the treasury and then in 1836 the chief justice of the supreme court. he went on to write the dred scott decision in 1857 which effectively legalized slavery and he's in the coming of the civil war so they were inseparable political figures in this period and influential and important in a way that is totally forgotten. in washington there is a bridge that crosses the potomac river in the park where he used to live and in the park there's lots of exhibits that are devoted to him and there is one that says he was active in antislavery causes and this is wrong, completely wrong. it would be more active to say that he was active in suppressing the antislavery causes. part of the point of the book is to remind people of things we really don't want to remember about our own history so this is also a book about the real francis scott key but i don't want to give the wrong impression. this book is not a polemical book or out to score points. i
andrew jackson and 32 to be reelected with a smaller share of the popular vote than the first time. let's bring in the audience, there in the back. >> concerned scientist. thanks for this panel. i want to pay that off as something you are saying about science-based reality and we saw the october surprise in this campaign was the super storm sandy not only suspending the campaign immediate coverage for generating the endorsement -- bloomberg endorsement and on the other hand the republican party over the years, we have seen looking over the right shoulder and tear in tehran the primaries like bob english or my castle or dick lugar and a few of knowledge climate is real work across the aisle but this may not have registered yet. yesterday for the five members of congress republicans targeted went down in defeat. one of them dan benishek is still in the bubble and may or may not carry through but four out of five went down because they were targeted for taking taking the antiscience position. i'm wondering to questions 14 whit. and for stan is there an opening for the president -- my prese
, and he was marked by it. >> host: who is jimmy -- who was jimmy lee jackson who figures in your book? >> guest: yes. jimmy lee jackson was 26 years old and an activist with the voter registration drive in my hometown of marion. and, um, he was shot by a state trooper on the night of february 18, 1965, and eight days later he died. and it was his death that spurred the march from selma to montgomery. so most people know about that march, but today don't know it was jimmy lee jackson's death that brought it about. >> host: i want to show our viewers what the inside of your book looks like here, and it's done in graphic novel form. why? >> guest: yes. yes, i'm the illustrator as well as the author. art is my first love, and so this was the way to tell my story visually not only because of my art background, but also it was a way to incorporate some of the images of photography. that motif runs throughout the book. that's why it's called "darkroom." >> host: what do you do today for a living? >> guest: well, i am -- after spending four years writing and illustrating this book, it has ove
jackson series, read: time. at the end of the summer, jack was a bright guy, but was not a big reader and a good-looking kid -- his mother must be very, very pretty. but by the end of the summer, he had read a dozen books. about nine of them he liked a lot in his reading skills have gone to remove. so he went from eight yourself or he didn't like to read two when he took his sats, which they take, he got 800 reading, which is the highest score you can get. so that's what can happen. it's unimportant whether they get 800 or harvard or vanderbilt , the support they get through high school and they have options when they get out. so yeah, mitch, where are you? , now, we're going to shoot the breeze and awesome question. what happened with that movie, et cetera, et cetera. [applause] >> so i think you can also why we have a master storyteller a mischievous measure in the story that he tells. i think we need to create on this throughout the country. we read in our house. i think that is one of the most brilliant taglines that i've heard in a long, long time. don't you agree? i think we sho

question. >> paul jackson, bergen record. >> could you tell me whether the disaster expiration of the expanded to more counties in new jersey today? >> we added on to more counties this morning and continue to work with governor christie todd impacts. a lot of areas as power outages can be the primary issue. will further cannot establish homes. the president added on somerset. as they continue to work this, will do further assessments to determine what's going to prominently divide will be homes damaged or destroyed, not just power outages and will also be looking at recovery costs another assistance that have not been declared yet. >> thank you, mr. chairman. operator, next question. >> good morning. i came in like, so i may be repeating something someone else asked. i want to know about adding additional counties in new york and also an explanation from your side of governor cuomo's request for 100% federal share. what would that be 100% of this congressional action needed for that? >> right now we have the boroughs impacted. again, as they assess damages, candidates can be a
are a say. coming almost a year to the day after stone wall jackson's death. grant's confidence was reward bid sheraton's battle field victory and the impressive post war achievement. when he was president, grant once told a congressman that sheraton had no superior as a general living or dead than possibly know call. sheraton said, grant, was capable more than general ship. he could manage a territory as any two nations can cover in a war. but sheraton would never risen so high nor would we have had city and counties named after him. [inaudible] circle in washington depicts sheraton the towering war house. the act of rallying the army at cedar creek green with age, statute conveyed the elect energy. lincoln and war secretary edwin stanton thought that 33-year-old sheraton too too young when he proposed in july that he command the new arm any of the shenandoah. sheridan's size contributed to the impression of youth that he projected. he was 5'5" and only 115 pounds in 1864. but as grants memorable belie areply -- i think you'll find him big enough for the job. before ate -- appointment, th
of the vote declined as this county today, 45-56th overall first president since andrew jackson to be reelected in his first reelection, first elected president of the smaller share of the vote in his reelection. and, of course, at this point he was tied with george w. bush, although johnson, for the narrowest margin of victory ever for successfully reelected president all that tells us i think is that we are a very divided country to obama, demography gives democrats an opportunity to build a majority coalition that will have some legs. they have won the popular vote five of six election to the difficulty in holding white voters while in office is something i think is a real challenge in executing the opportunity that demographic change provides. i mean, two things are remarkable, that in many ways this campaign shows the weakness of both sides, that republicans are unable to win even 20% of minorities, and a sitting democratic president could not even 40% of whites. both parties are looking and structural challenges into the state to come and the chance that obama had still a
a european style social democracy or more towards the traditional conservative populism of jackson or his ronald reagan, and third. when they manage to deal with the deadlocks to change the direction or brick at such a deadlock as this it comes into the presidential leadership. it doesn't come into any other means. that need to be a good harbinger for your policy and how they are bred to move forward on terms of what to promote. so, given all of that if you buy into any of it, it is to what extent do you see any way in the world that the next four years are going to be anything other than a continuation of the last four struggling through, kicking the can down the road not dealing with the fundamental problems of america? >> three very good questions. i would say that obama's first term has two parts before and after the 2010 election just as the clinton administration was also two parts. as a talk about the last years and clinton when the republicans took the house and forced them to keep welfare reform and cut the capitol gains tax. they never talk about the first two years where the jo
democracy or more towards the traditional conservative populism of jackson or ronald reagan. third, when the country manages to deal with such a deadlock or change such a deadlock as this it doesn't come to any other means. so you have a lot of red and that may be a good harbinger for your party but it doesn't say anything about how the country is going to move forward in terms of what you promote. so given all of that if you buy any of it, to what extent do you see any way the next four years are going to be anything other than a continuation of the last struggling kicking the can down the road not really dealing with the fundamental problems in america? >> three very good questions. i would say that obama's first term has two parts before and after the 2012 election just as the clinton administration was also to parts. i talk about the last six years when they took the house and the senate and forced the welfare reform and cut the capitol gains tax. they never talk about the first two years where growth and jobs were flat when the democrats read everything. so i'm all in favor of a las
